At Northridge DentalWorks, we offer sinus lift surgery, a specialized procedure designed to create sufficient space in the upper jaw for dental implants. This procedure is crucial for patients who lack adequate bone height in the upper jaw or have sinuses too close to the jaw for implant placement.

Understanding Sinus Lift Surgery

A sinus lift, also known as sinus augmentation, involves lifting the sinus membrane and adding bone graft material to the upper jaw to support dental implants. It is typically recommended for:

  • Patients with bone loss in the upper jaw.
  • Those with sinuses that are too close to the jaw.
  • Individuals seeking dental implants for upper back teeth.

The Sinus Lift Procedure

Our skilled oral surgeon and team ensure a safe and effective sinus lift experience:

  1. Initial Assessment: Comprehensive evaluation of your dental health and jaw structure.
  2. Surgical Procedure: Making a small incision in the gum tissue, lifting the sinus membrane and placing the bone graft.
  3. Healing and Recovery: Allowing time for the graft to integrate and create new bone.
  4. Preparation for Implants: Once healed, the area is ready for dental implant placement.

Benefits of a Sinus Lift

  • Enables Dental Implants: Creates the necessary bone structure for implant placement.
  • Improves Oral Health: Supports overall jaw health and functionality.
  • Long-Term Solution: Offers a lasting foundation for upper jaw dental implants.
  • Advanced Techniques: Utilizes modern surgical methods for optimal outcomes.
